The topic of the day was Selling Online. The aim of the day was to equip our participants with the skills and confidence to open their own online shop.
We discussed different platforms, including bigcartel, etsy and Australian site madeit.com.au
The importance of promoting your own store through social media was also discussed at great length.
Fourteen local handmade business women, all Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market stallholders, took part in the workshop. Lively conversations took place during the day, especially at the delicious communal lunch.
It was decided in one of these conversations that the next KEEP CYB workshop would be dedicated to social media. We have set the date as July 19th. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
A big thanks to Liz, our Make Craft Your Business facilitator - Dee, and the women who attended the workshop.
